Our minds want to protect us from the truth, but we are sane to be screaming.

The way to safely lift the lockdown is to be vaccinated. Or have everyone follow the lockdown rules for a few weeks.

Which one was Florida doing this whole time? Or Texas?

They fared no worse relative to other states, and I believe that tells us there are details about the transmission of this virus that have been badly misunderstood over the last year. We might've latched on to bad recommendations because of this. But, even if governments knew that masks only made a minimal difference right from the start, they would probably still tell everyone to wear them as a panacea, to make the populace feel like we are in control, and "doing our part" to help. It's well-meaning and understandable.

Officials always get obsessed about technical definitions so they can look up the correct protocols to recommend from their manual. They are unthinking bureaucrats. Like remember last February/March when they were hesitant to call it a "pandemic" and were quibbling about the precise definition of the term? I think the same is true about questions like whether this virus should now be reclassified as "airborne" which was also widely denied as they pushed for the "droplets" explanation, and then "aerosols" for so long instead.

Droplets & aerosols would justify the 2m rule and masking. But distance wouldn't actually help for an airborne virus, and neither would masks. I predict that "lockdowns" in apartment buildings with shared HVAC systems didn't help us much either. It's possible that other recommendations focusing on dilution would've had better results instead: improve ventilation, open windows, gather outside, etc. Assuming they're willing to admit it's been airborne this whole time of course.

How the fuck do you get so manipulated

Sure, some people are easily manipulated and don't think for themselves. But it's possible to disagree for well-founded reasons and contradictory evidence too. It shouldn't be a tribal team-mask vs. team no-mask argument assuming everyone is stupid. Are you manipulated to "trust the science", or have you looked into it? If you did, would you allow yourself to raise questions and have a solid discussion about it?

I'm not "anti-mask" by the way. There's much more interesting depth to the issue that's worth actually discussing.

Yes, very true. I'm actually kind of worried now after seeing how relatively well it's gone.

The fact that there weren't more major disruptions over the last year just tells us how detached from physical reality some things actually are. The stock market are way up after what should have been periods of lockdown & contraction for several industries. Housing prices are way up.

Either the economy is way more resilient than we imagined, which would means the whole industry of financial theorizing, analysis and punditry were complete bullshit and we don't understand economics at all... or things are desperately propped up in places and overinflated, just waiting for a slight breeze to bring it crashing back down. So which one is the real Potemkin village?

Makes me wonder about things like the gas shortages: an isolated incident, or a sign of more to come?

"funded by Anthony Fauci" is hyperbolic, but the actual facts should still be discussed soberly: The NIH and NIAID funded the research through third-party contractors like EcoHealth Alliance, who worked with labs in China and published scientific papers with them.

It should not be taboo for our news media to point out these facts. I suspect everybody's hands are a little bit dirty.

The Canadian Conservatives are weak and ineffectual, same as the US Republican party right now, I think. The same kinds of woke ideological tricks are being used against them to the point that they also have to deny common sense and go along with everything to not be labeled as bigots.

Absolutely zero principles. It probably will take a nutjob like Trump to break through—unfortunately.

The only ones vocally standing up to it within the Conservative party are the more Christian-family-values, more hard-right types like Derek Sloan and fringe parties with other unpalatable views like Maxime Bernier's People's Party that splintered off from the Conservatives. These people are too edgy to be electable and will not make a difference.

Interesting discusssion, thanks. I think we are fundamentally debating classic Marxism as an economic theory against various strains of neo-Marxism here. Such as Antonio Gramsci, for one:

... renovate the existing intellectual activity of the masses and make it natively critical of the status quo. His ideas about an education system for this purpose correspond with the notion of critical pedagogy ...

"Cultural marxism" is not my term though. As a criticism of "cultural hegemony" it might be Gramsci's own invention, but as I said I don't really care what it's called... There is also "Marxist cultural analysis":

Since the 1930s, the tradition of Marxist cultural analysis has occasionally also been referred to as "cultural Marxism", in reference to Marxist ideas about culture

Wikipedia also has an article called "Cultural Marxism conspiracy theory" which is what you're probably referring to. I'm not. We shouldn't go on pretending that these ideas don't exist or are willful misrepresentations though. And if we do need to adopt a derisive term for this kind of ideological attack by borrowing it from Gramsci's critics, then so be it. Heck, even "capitalism" comes from Das Kapital and we use it to this day.

To be clear though, I really don't subscribe to any "Jewish question" baggage that comes along with these terms. We need a common language though, and I guess I would call the kind of ideological revolution called for in the quote above (through arbitrary definitions of oppressor/oppressed categories) to be some kind of cultural marxism. That's my colloquial definition at least, and it comes from reading Gramsci, a bonafide (neo-) Marxist—not his persecutors.

Maybe you're right and it is actually possible to tease apart these ideas from postmodernism and nazism. But there are still core elements of (neo-) Marxism in there, and those distinct ideas are from a century ago have semantically drifted into each other into the mess we're seeing today. It's probably not helpful to quibble about old terms and instead talk about what's actually happening.

If I am an "ist" of anything I would want to call myself a pragmatist. I don't believe in the supremacy of the Right over the Left or vice-versa. They are both necessary to keep balance on different issues. Some things are necessarily better when socialized; many other things not. You said:

A core, fundamental portion of Marxist thought is of a continuous line of economic development

I fundamentally don't believe there is a continuous line. We need the ability to adapt and diversify our resources, and a singular theory or way of thinking cannot be helpful to all situations or avoid creating harm that it didn't account for.

That's not "social Marxism", a.k.a. "cultural Marxism", a.k.a. "The Joos", a.k.a. Nazi propaganda

Your initial argument was that it's not a thing, then you go on to describe it pretty well. (I disagree about the "Nazi" propaganda part, unless you mean to say these postmodern warriors are the same as that. Blame entire groups of people for society's problems, things like that do go with the territory.)

Your terminology is nonsensical (and basically backwards), but your thought is correct

I am not a well-studied academic. I just call it as I see it.

but the problem with them is not the Marxism part

LOL. Process of elimination! What else is left... this is the part where I bring up Mao, Pol Pot, etc.

What this is, is another attempt by the US establishment to destroy class consciousness - the only threat to their power

The literal defininition of "wokeness" is creating consciousness — it might just have been given the wrong targets of race & gender instead of wealth & class as its origin of societal power structures. Misdirect to divide instead of unite. Maybe that's by design. Or maybe we're just doing it to our well-meaning selves.

Oh, you're right. Thank you. She seems to be smart enough to know not to debate this on Twitter.

Her position seems somewhat nuanced with regards to elite sport vs. everything else and she's actively trying to engage the opposing viewpoints. Her take is constructive to get people to start thinking back towards a sane middle ground. I personally think the same rules should apply to everyone including children at least at the point when sexes start to differ significantly—in any sanctioned sports after about age 10-12 or so. How else does someone become an elite athlete, it can't be some magical line where the rules suddenly change. Why indulge boys with false hopes and overinflate their egos, and simultaneously discourage girls who would otherwise be top of their category.

"social Marxism" is not a thing

I don't know what the fuck Soros is supposed to be about, but that is absolutely a thing. It has all kinds of names, but see cultural hegemony for some background on what this ideology is attacking in its world view.

Basically, Marxism was about organizing people under oppression vs. the oppressed. Originally this was an economic theory with terms like "proletariat" and "bourgeoisie" to describe the players in the class warfare, but anything could be framed this way, you just have to convince people that they need to side with the "oppressed", or else. The goal for the oppressed is called "liberation", but you know, like the Chinese People's Liberation Army it'll liberate you of something, that's for sure.

After the revolution in Russia, other western academics understood that it'll take more than the economy to make good people hate everything & each other to the point of tearing everything down in order to rebuild society to their vision of utopia. People do actually have principles that go deeper than money so you have to pick away at the culture and undercut any anchors of stability like cultural traditions & values first.

What you're seeing now with the promotion of divisions between sexes, within sexualities (as evidenced by the linked image), between races and political ideologies is exactly that: an attempt to discredit the values that underpin all of culture and make people hate everything while debating who's more oppressed. There is no interest in resolving these conflicts. There are no acceptable solutions because the conflict is the whole point: saying you are tolerant is not enough, saying you want to be apolitical is not enough. You are expected to take a side, or else you're complicit. This is a cultural revolution. This is cultural/social Marxism.

No way the liberal media wouldn't have been all over this story.

Unless that wasn't the actual story. News checks it out, calls the mom who says this dude was trying to coerce her daughter who texted her mom to come save her from this creepy dude.

I'm kind of hoping that people get over the idea of identifying as and belonging to and can just start being themselves without needing to call undue attention to it, whatever that is.

This is a fascinating episode. Read Jason Fried's blog too with the actual announcement: https://world.hey.com/jason

Basecamp is a very small company, but they are significant for defining how culture can be done right in the tech space. People have always looked up to them for standing true to their values and doing what they believe is right. Sure there were detractors, but I think that's just jealousy at the fact that two guys started a private company and basically redefined web software for a generation.

They offered their employees six months salary and no hard feelings if they disagree with this decision. In my opinion that's very generous and they don't owe them anything else. A lot of these engineers were probably making close to $200k salary so we're supposed to be surprised when a handful of them took the cool $100k to say have a nice life?

Wow, they're so oppressed for being told to stop comparing everything to genocide at work.

If TRAs saying a boy in a dress is inherently trans is creepy, then so is obsessing over children's potential sexualities. by OPPRESSED_REPTILIAN in LGBDropTheT

[–]slushpilot 8 insightful - 1 fun8 insightful - 0 fun9 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I think you make a valid point that obsessing over this stuff is weird. Also, does nobody else consider if kids are being overexposed to the complexities of adult sexuality, and that we should just let them grow up with a little more innocence? Questioning is an important process to developing a stable and secure identity. Let kids be themselves, they'll puzzle it out eventually!

Because when someone proclaims they have a "trans kid"—especially when they haven't even even reached puberty, and I would say even teenagers at this point—that's placing an expectation on how they will feel and see themselves after they mature. Projecting those expectations and confirming them is deeply wrong, since it denies children the ability to explore and find out where they fit into the world, so pushing this idea into young minds can only lead to harmful, irreversible decisions.

I don't think anybody is saying they will otherwise grow up to be gay. (Citation needed.) Saying the child might just be gay is the opposite of that. It's specifically avoiding any expectations, and it's not something that they can't figure out for themselves later after having at least been through a relationship or two on their own terms.

I think it's the declaration that they "will" become something that's the weird and creepy part—and it doesn't matter what it is.

  5. You get to choose what conditions are covered as a "health condition" or not
  6. Move cases from column A to column B
  7. Look, a reduction!

Read again. I'm not defending "wishing for death". I'm saying we don't need to take everything someone says in a moment of exasperation and intentionally amplifying it into something it isn't.

Pure psychological projection

Yes, exactly this. All I'm saying both sides need to:

A. Tone it down with all the accusations of racism, comparisons to the holocaust, fill-in-the-blank-phobia, etc. B. Learn to receive a full-throated "go fuck yourself" and respond without cowering and invoking accusations of racism, etc.

Clutching your pearls about how somebody said something offensive is not a confident response: it's exactly what the Left does.

Yes I did read it. I said "death threat" quite vaguely because so many of these articles are just someone with third-hand outrage exaggerating about how someone "literally" wants you dead because they said something vaguely critical. Headlining this as "Wishes Death" is still hyperbolic for the actual quote so I think it fits.

So what if he's talking smack and calling those people idiots and saying they're going to make themselves sick and die. You're upset that he thinks it's the same people who voted for brexit so he just wishes it happened sooner? It's a pissy thing to say, but so what. Come up with a more clever reply instead of whinging about him being blunt and off-colour.

People are allowed to disagree with political opinions and call each other ignoramuses. That's my whole point. The answer is not to cry about how someone said something mean and they shouldn't be allowed to say it, but to address their actual point (if there is one) or just be an adult, shrug it off and say whatever—I still think you're an idiot though...

it makes sense once you understand that the Left considers the Right as The Other

Ironically, the way you phrase this makes it sound like "othering" the left. It's a good essay though.

I'm not a fan of inflating everything someone said into a sensational headline. Sure, it's unprofessional and blunt, but so what. Guess who else was exactly this for four years.

Saying you "wish" something is not a death threat and I don't think it should be taken so seriously. People need to vent, no matter what side of the political aisle they are on. If we don't allow space for this, public discourse only going to get worse.

Antiviolence public health programs should identify young and Black or Latina transfeminine women as an especially vulnerable population.

Discussion (further down):

The estimates suggest that overall in the United States during 2010 to 2014, transgender residents may have been at lower risk for homicide than were cisgender residents.

Hah. Funny how they had to extract some kind of politically-palatable takeaway to put at the top... "I don't like your conclusions." ... "Ok, well this subset is more vulnerable even though the whole cohort is not?" ... "Perfect, there's your conclusion. Run it."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yankee_Doodle

The term macaroni was used to describe a fashionable man who dressed and spoke in an outlandishly affected and effeminate manner.

In British conversation, the term "Yankee doodle dandy" implied unsophisticated misappropriation of upper-class fashion, as though simply sticking a feather in one's cap would transform the wearer into a noble. [...] the British were insinuating that the colonists were lower-class men who lacked masculinity, emphasizing that the American men were womanly.

By 1781, Yankee Doodle had turned from being an insult to being a song of national pride.

Punk rock, basically. Turning the other cheek as an act of subversion.

Regardless of what you claim here—have you considered that perhaps those tests are designed to measure those "capitalized" skills at the exclusion of equally important "soft" skills? You measure what you value, and that's where you find the extremes of your scale.

For any society to function continuously and survive, a mix of both (and more) kinds of skills are vital. Call it what you want: stability vs. risk, conservative vs. progressive, or any other axis you choose. You'll never convince me that the right answer is one at the exclusion of the other.

Great post. You lost me a bit on the religious parts, but I can't disagree with anything you wrote.

If anything, it seems this virus is seasonal and doesn't appear to care whether we wear masks or not. At the start of March, Alberta's "sister state" of Texas announced they would open everything, 100%. Numbers of both daily cases & daily deaths continue to decline in the weeks since. Similarly in Florida, which refused to close down at any point.

People who claim to "trust the science" should really be looking closely at this: science is ALWAYS about questioning what we know. It's not a matter of faith.

[–]slushpilot 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Yeah, that's not good. I'm sure there are people for whom sex is not pleasurable for many different reasons, or even just because, and hence they don't want it in their relationship.

But then, if "asexual" just meant that, then it would actually mean something. It's when it starts being combined with modifiers like "hypersexual asexuals" etc. that you start to wonder—is someone just making this up because it's really a kid who hasn't actually had sex (and maybe is too young to really want to), but has instead just read all about it on the internet?

I do suspect that there are a lot of young people who haven't actually had sex before they start labelling themselves and identifying as something just to fit in, too. I would dismiss it as a harmless "what I'm going to be when I grow up" kind of fantasy—if only it didn't come with so many harmful ideas and expectations like the ones you describe.

I'm afraid it will take a few iterations of "first they came for" until enough institutional voices & then ordinary people are willing to speak up publicly, no longer caring about losing their social capital to appear accepting at all costs. Undoubtedly these issues will start hitting closer & closer to home until enough lines are crossed. Then, the atrocious ideas that this movement has been spreading can finally be ridiculed openly, and the institututions that supported it unquestioningly will start to distance themselves from it.

it is true that gender dysphoria exists and is a real issue

It exists, but I also wonder how much of it is a "real issue". I suspect the current surge is often wrongly attributed because of increased anxiety among youth, and simply self-diagnosed / self-identified as such—which a therapist is now expected to "affirm".

So I wouldn't simply agree that it's a "real issue"—but it is complex.

Some teenagers/young adults that I know are afraid of picking up the phone to make an appointment or introduce themselves & ask people for what they need. Whatever underlies that kind of insecurity & anxiety is likely related to the cause of things like ROGD...

Since smartphones & social media, it's the first generation that's been able to avoid navigating in-person interactions & develop a social identity disconnected from physical reality. Then, add some insane ideas from the internet and puberty into the mix—and are we really surprised?

On the flip side, the Marxist idea of "Liberation" (effectively, any revolution against the hegemony, anti-capitalism, anti-imperialism, anti-racism and all similar strains of utopian thought) was also embraced in some parts of the Catholic church, especially in Central & South America during the later 20th century. Most notably, the Sandinista movement of Nicaragua. Pope JPII was a wise critic of these movements, recognizing that our attempts to establish heaven on earth could only be done by force, and paradoxically result in a hell of our own creation. As a Pole, he would surely know.

Just look up Marxism Liberation and see how quickly you get to "Liberation Theology".
